Many Macs include small stock flash SSDs that can fill up quickly with your photos, projects, apps, and email. Aura Pro X SSDs are available in 240GB, 480GB, 1.0TB and 2.0TB capacities, delivering up to sixteen times the capacity of your Mac's stock flash drive. Upgrading with an Aura Pro X SSD gives you the freedom to do more with your Mac.
Replacing the PCIe-based flash drive in your Mac can be as simple as removing a few screws with the screwdrivers included with your upgrade kit. Our free comprehensive video installation guides mean an OWC expert is with you every step of the way.
Aura PCIe-based flash storage upgrades are precisely engineered for your Mac laptop, so you'll never need to compromise your data by relying on complicated software hacks or TRIM-enablers to get the most from your upgrade. Just install, migrate your data, and enjoy the great performance of flash storage with up to eight times the capacity of the factory-installed drive.
Your upgrade should be a seamless experience. That's why Aura SSD upgrade kits for Mac Pro and laptops standard with existing SSD/Flash come with Envoy Pro2, the beautifully designed, high-performance SSD enclosure to reimagine your Mac's factory PCIe-based flash drive. When you remove your original flash SSD, it fits perfectly into Envoy Pro so you can transfer all of your data to the new Aura inside your laptop. Once the file transfer is complete, enjoy using your Mac's factory-installed flash SSD as a fast USB external drive with transfer speeds up to 426MB/s.
OWC SSDs perform maintenance tasks in the background that optimize the health, performance, and endurance of your flash drive. These jobs take advantage of available, unwritten areas on the SSD. Aura PCIe-based flash storage reserves 7% of the overall capacity as free space. Always. With this allocated free space, Aura SSDs can perform these normal maintenance tasks making your drive more stable, dependable, and ultimately a safer place to store your data.
Aura SSDs are proudly designed in Austin, TX, and are backed by a 5-year limited warranty as well as a lifetime of free, award-winning USA-based support.
